Does the value we place on things decrease based on how much we have of it?
There was a couple of things that I witnessed in the last week that triggered this thought. The more I thought about it, I started to see a pattern that crossed over many other areas of life. Some of the things I thought about were:
If only 100 babies were capable of being born every year, would we consider abortion?
If you only saw another person once a year, would you walk past them and not stop to talk?
When a painter, a musician or an actor dies. Their works of art all of sudden become valuable because we know there will never be anything new.
Why is the grass always greener on the other side?
The myth of how rare diamonds are and how that creates not only high prices but also an attitude of how we feel about them.
squirrels, armadillos, insects, little Florida lizards, they’re all over the place and when we see one dead, it’s not a big deal.
These are just some random thoughts that were going through my mind this past week that I wanted to share. What do you think? What in your everyday life are you abundantly blessed with, but maybe take for granted?
